New tobacco findings...
I am concluding at this point that my guide is Wabun (the Eagle spirit keeper of the East), who speaks to me through channel. The channel is imperfect right now due to flaws in my aura, recovering from spiritual assault, but also because of shifting states, so I can't always read specifically every detail, or even completely accurately sometimes. Wabun is affiliated with tobacco, and it was a beautiful vision of an eagle that came to my mind's eye when I first began smoking ceremonial tobacco with inhale, way back when. The eagle, I suspect now, is not a power animal of mine, but a symbol representing this guide. The cobra is my power animal, the owl was a symbol that kept popping up, and I am still seeking to understand that particular component.
I have just discovered that using tobacco leaf over the burner as an offering to Wabun while praying to have a question answered means profoundly finer results in channel, and better psychic sight. The results are like night and day from when I just open channel, without tobacco, cards or no cards. This means if I become a professional, I will likely require a steady supply of fine tobacco to do accurate, meaningful readings. Kinda sucks that I can't obtain the finer stuff as easily as a First Nations person can, but there are ways around this, and I know of at least one source where it is easily purchased. I know enough connections to elders that if it was understood how I use it, and that I actually require it, I am sure I could obtain more if this one source were to stop carrying it.
The way it works is that I utter the prayer, make the offering over the charcoal, and after the tobacco leaf turns to ash, the answer is delivered through vocal channeling. It's pretty fascinating to feel it come through. Thinking back, this only makes sense since the channeling began from smoking tobacco - even cigarettes did something in this regard. But inhale, in my case, is a foolish thing to do, and the pipe isn't even needed for this specific thing, so use of the plant over a charcoal is how it should be done.
It has been the limitations of my life and the frustrations of the unknowable, both in the world around me and in worlds beyond, that drove me to seek psychic insight. Questions I can't have answered in the conventional sense, I tune in to find the answers for, this way. This is a compelling means of training the mind to expand. Tobacco offerings, not entheogens, look to be the better way of working with this.
